    Darn it!!! Bound to be genuine too. Better luck next time 
    I had a wicked one the other week I was told someone had passed away and was a relative. Not only was this relative unheard of he was living in China and a director of a major car company and he'd left me his shares in the company. I strung these people along for over 2 weeks 😊😊

    JennyJ, if you ever go into one of the more “interesting” parts of a major Scottish city when the pubs are emptying you will find yourself being called “doll” a lot.

    When I lived there as a student I found it quite endearing.😊

    Hmm, local colour!  A bit like being called "love" or "duck" around here.

    Indeed. “Doll” was definitely a friendly and rather playful rejoinder. The other form of address was “hen”, but I found that that was usually used when a degree of sympathy or commiseration was called for.

    I think I'd be more bothered if someone called me a doll :s
    You wouldn’t have liked living in London in the 60’s /70’s. All the stall holders in the markets were Jewish and all ladies were referred to as doll.
